I have many column headings which are quite long. In Excel I can change the text alignment so the column heading runs vertically rather than horizontally. By using a smaller font it can display a lot more information this way. Now that you have added vertical data labelling to charts can we have similar functionality in the tables and matrices?

You can change column header orientation just like excel using Inforiver. Check out this blog for a quick video.

This feedback process is pointless... it's practically never updated. This is a new idea digital cemetery.

It's faster to get a law passed in congress then getting a response on a hugely beneficial request from Microsoft. BTW, such feature has been in Excel since the 80's...

When i am creating Metrix Visual ...i have dropped Sales in Value field, at the top of the visual there is no option to plot text verticaly

Make possible to rotate the column header so that they appear vertical. It's very usefull for the case that I have a number of columns and the names of each column is a rather long text, hence it makes the matrix's width large even though the actual cells just hold a number. Format-wise, it can be much more pleasant if the column heades could have appeared vertically to save space rather than the default horizontal.

How to make table visualisation header text vertically in power BI

It would be useful to be able to change the orientation of column headers from a horizontal to vertical state. This would allow to save on screen estate and minimise the use of the horizontal scroll-bar.

Thanks,

for a short term workaround you can use SVG:



Vert = "data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'><text font-size='12px' font-family='sans-serif' transform='translate(12, 75) rotate(270)'>" & 'Table'[Host] & "</text></svg>"

If you want a short term workaround you can use SVG



Vert = "data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns='http://www.w3.org/2000/svg'><text font-size='12px' font-family='sans-serif' transform='translate(12, 75) rotate(270)'>" & 'Table'[Host] & "</text></svg>"

 

Tableau makes it very easy to rotate column headings
